IN YEARS TO COME 

We will remember not only the draft 
quotas and the indecision in Korea but 
also the fellows and the girls, the serious 
learning and the friendly joking, the 
carefree laughter at the New Bedford

Class Highlights 

Further nightlife throughout the year consisted of 
a continuous fioorshow in Room #2 with Mr. Sallus 
as the Master of Ceremonies. A cute figure was 
(ut by the exotic Miss Calculus who held the class 
interest by a strange and powerful bond. 




The Californian playboy, DeAraujo, 
arrived on the scene with three cars 
which were immediately confiscated 
by the girls for their new lunchroom. 



It was in the Chem Lab that the Second Battalion of 

the Chemical Corps was instructed in the offensive and 

defensive uses of the water rat. However, the rampage 

caused Mr. Dupre to tell the class, "ft is mandatory 

that your conduct deviate toward the more stable charac- 
teristics of Juniors in college." 



The end was in sight with the start 
of the Senior year. But yet, it was 
the beginning for man)' as the color 
of khaki predominated the minds of 
those who awaited the call. 



When the bell sounded the reprieve, the class 
filed orderly down the stairs to the "sumptuously 
furnished lounge" to partake of their lunches. 



31 




The most outstanding father's award went to 
John Lowney who, in the course of four years, 
aided in the production of a trio; Morris Feder- 
man came in second with doubles and Maurer, 
Ashworth, Kuliga, and Paul Lowney were attri- 
buted with singles. 



It was in this first year of school that the masters 
of music were assembled under the guidance of 
Mr. John Barylski and his vibrant "slush pump". 
The Class of '52 was well represented with "Saxy 
Zyggie", "Squeezebox" Gonet, "Licorice stick" 
Barish, and "Skins" Sunderland. Those indivi- 
duals who lacked the skill to play an instrument 
usually lent their voices to the accompaniment 
of this unit. 






As the bell rang, a mad dash was conducted 
down three flights of stairs to have a "butt" or 
to antagonize "Greg", the cheerful ex-proprietor 
of the joint across the street. 



Suddenly, loud noises were heard. Mr. 
Barylski had just criticized Frantz Brandt's 
masterpieces. Just to prove that he was 
right, Brandt tore his paper in strips and 
strolled nonchalantly from the room. 




A heated argument is conducted in one corner by 
Don Galnan, Pete Sylvia, and Vic Slater. The meat 
of the situation is Vic's car which won't run and it 
seems Don Galnan was the last one to "fix" it. 
Finally, Dick - - - the used car huckster - - - Lake 
straightens things out by selling Vic a car he "just 
happened to have on hand." 



Al Sarkes led the way in machine shop practice 
through his acleptness for ±.001" measurements 
by eye. However, it was while taking a course 
in Tool Inspection that Al improved his sight 
to ±.0001". With but another year to go, the 
boys still turned out square-threaded pretzels 
and U-bolts. 



To the amazement of many of the students, 
including some Seniors, there was found to 
be one more room at the Institute. It was 
a library which was opened to the students 
on a part-time basis. 



The Senior year saw Dave Pearson and Johnny 
Rocha still one step ahead of the draft. Mean- 
while, in the sanctuary, Room #2, Lieutenant 
Joe Sargent liberally discussed the principles and 
hner points of warfare. 



33 




HUMOR 



Customs Guard: "What have you in 

that bag, sir?" 
Shanahan: "Sure and its just a little 

holy water for Father Hogan." 
Guard (uncorking bottle) "Well it 

smells like Irish Whiskey — and 

it tastes like Irish Whiskey." 
Shanahan: "Saints be praised! A 

miracle." 



Calnan: "Hey Charves, how did you 
ruin your tire?" 

Charves: "Ran over a milk bottle." 

Calnan: "Didn't you see it in time?" 

Charves: "No, the kid had it under 
his coat." 



Mr. Fenaux: "I had a student who caught pneumonia and died last week be- 
cause he neglected to put on his jacket when he went for a smoke." 
(Silence for ten seconds) 

Dougherty: "Can I have his beakers?" 



Mr. Giblin: "How come you're 
late? Don't you have an alarm 
clock?" 

Slater: "Yes, but it went off while 
I was asleep." 



Cotter: "Did you see where a fellow 
beat his wife to death with a golf 
club?" 

Mr. B. "No, how many strokes did 
he take?" 



A professor is a man whose job it is to tell students how to solve the problems 
of life which he himself has tried to avoid by becoming a professor. 



"Yeah," said George Kuliga, "when I first came to NBTI, I was pretty con- 
ceited, but they knocked all that out of me and now I'm one of the best fellows 
in college." 



Mr. Dupre: "Miss, will you please run off 75 copies of this exam?" 

Miss: "But, Mr. Dupre, this is the same exam you gave last semester." 

Mr. Dupre: "I know, but I've changed the answers." 



In a recent statistical analysis, it was revealed that among college graduates, 
males have 1.3 children and females have 1.7 children. This only proves that 
women have more children than men. 



Mr. Sylvia: "Hold that wire, will 
you?" 

Jose: "I got it, now what?" 
Mr. Sylvia: "Didn't you feel anything?" 
Jose: "No." 

Mr. Sylvia: "Well, don't touch the 
other one, it carries 3000 volts." 



Mr. Tripp: "So, you went to class 
this morning?" 

Red Lyons: "Yeah, how do you 
know?" 

Mr. Tripp: "Your suit looks like it 
has been slept in." 



Student: "Professor, I wish you'd get married." 

Professor: "Yes? Why?" 

Student: "I'd like to throw an old shoe at you."

KAPPA SIGMA PHI SORORITY 

The Beta Chapter of Kappa Sigma Phi Sorority opened its 
social season in September with a Get-Acquainted Party for the 
freshmen girls. We all had a good time and made many new 
friends. 

In November, bids were sent to the new girls and six accep- 
tances were received. Hazing took place during the week of Novem- 
ber 25, 1951. Highlights of the hazing were a talent show held in 
the school auditorium, the singing of "I Get Ideas" to Mr. B - -, a 
thorough cleaning of the front stairs with toothbrushes, and a mock 
band which paraded through the corridors. Eye-catching in costumes 
out of this world were a South Sea siren in a grass skirt that left 
its traces all around the building, a stage-shy Indian maid, an air- 
raid warden, a flapper, and a sweet, old lady whose white wig was 
anchored by a pair of ear phones. After hazing, the formal initia- 
tion and banquet was held at the New Bedford Hotel on December 
1, 1951. 

Our membership strengthened, we turned to the necessary 
task of redecorating the lounge. The chemistry girls took over 
the painting while the technologists attended to the curtains 
and upholstery. To those who contributed their time, talents, 
and suggestions, particularly Mr. George Walker, Mr. Fred Beards- 
worth, Mr. Edward Cloutier, Mr. Edmund Dupre, Mr. James Gib- 
lin, and Miss Nancy Allen, Kappa Sigma Phi is grateful. 

Setting a new precedent was the sorority's next project. On 
December 11, a luncheon for the faculty was held in the lounge. 
The room was decorated in keeping with the holiday season and 
the tables literally groaned under the load of food. Judging from 
the fine comments received by the sorority, the undertaking was 
appreciated and enjoyed. For the remainder of the week, the 
lounge remained open to all the students. 

Our activities for the second semester of the year included a 
co-ed party, a bowling party, an annual weiner roast, and our 
installation banquet. 

The girls of Kappa Sigma Phi sincerely feel that this year 
was one of accomplishment and that the future will show con- 
tinued cooperation within the school.

DELTA KAPPA PHI FRATERNITY began its 1951-52 sea- 
son with a new slate of officers. The leaders were: Robert Sala, 
Consul; Stephen Dougherty, Pro-Consul; Walter Gonet, Custodian; 
Richard Lafferty, Annotator; James Siddall, Scribe; Paul Patnaude, 
Sergeant-at-Arms. 

The "Dekes" started off the season with a couples' party at 
the lounge. Refreshments were served and records were played 
for dancing. Because the affair was a success, a second party was 
held in October. The members and their guests really enjoyed 
themselves; for this reason, the fraternity planned one party for 
each month following. 

A turkey raffle was held just before the Thanksgiving Day 
holiday with part of the proceeds being used to buy a Thanks- 
giving basket for a needy family here in New Bedford. 

DELTA KAPPA PHI held its first "open house" November 
14, 1951. The evening was highlighted by the presence of many 
non-frat men, along with the active chapter members, a few 
alumni, and eleven of the school's instructors who are members. 
A program of sport movies was shown, along with several cartoons. 
Refreshments followed. 

On the last day of school before the Christmas vacation, the 
fraternity held its annual Christmas party at the lounge. "Santa 
Claus" visited the brothers and distributed the gifts. Entertainment 
was provided by the "Dazzling Dekes" under the direction of Mr. 
John Barylski, who gave a terrific two hour show. 

On February 1, 1952, DELTA KAPPA PHI staged its second 
open house at Carpenters' Hall in the City. Another fine turnout 
was on hand for the moving pictures that were shown and for the 
performance of those "Dazzling Dekes." Refreshments were served 
and the traditional "keg" was emptied. 

Came the last week-end in April and the brothers were off 
for the city of Philadelphia. There they attended the 53rd Annual 
National Convention of DELTA KAPPA PHI fraternity, with Alpha 
Chapter of Philadelphia Textile Institute as host. Many of the old 
acquaintances from the previous year at Raleigh, N.C. were re- 
newed and new ones made. A tour was made of the school and the 
three-day affair wound up with the banquet. 

Upon return from Philadelphia, the "Dekes" closed out the 
school year with its annual clambake at Perry's Grove. The high- 
light of the affair was a baseball game between the alumni and 
the students, which was won by the other team. 

DELTA KAPPA PHI looks forward to the coming 1952-53 
school season as another year of school fun and fellowship, and 
wishes its members of the departing senior class and all seniors the 
best of luck.

At the start of the school year, Phi Psi suffered a tremendous loss in the passing of Executive 
Secretary Harold Hart, the youngest member of the fraternity. Although not in years, he was by far 
the youngest member in spirit and enthusiasm. It was through his efforts as a founder that Phi Psi 
was born, grew solidly throughout the United States and became a national professional fraternity. 

All of us who are his brothers should strive to perpetuate Phi Psi as a living tribute to him who 
loved and served it best. 

Soon after, Grand President M. Earl Heard announced the appointment of John T. Wigington 
as Executive Secretary. Brother Wigington is a member of the Arkwrights, Inc., the American Society 
for Testing Materials, the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists, Secretary of The 
Fiber Society, Director of the Clemson Alumni Corporation and is listed in the sixth and seventh in- 
ternational editions of "Who's Who in Commerce and Industry." He is presently at Clemson College 
as Director of the Division of Technical Service of the Cotton Textile Institute Inc. 

Brother Wigington is the author of quite a number of technical papers dealing with Cotton 
Fiber and Spinning Research Work and has been a frequent contributor of articles to professional 
journals and textile trade papers. 

In September, Beta Chapter listed sixty-four active members. Thirteen new members were 
pledged after the start of the second semester. These pledges, with contingents from Delta and Gamma 
Chapters, as guests of the respective chapters, received their third degree on March 29, 1952 at the 
Hotel Beaconsfield in Brookline, Mass. As usual, there was a "long-to-be-remembered" banquet 
after the conferral of the third degree. 

The principal social events of the year consisted of two open-house gatherings, a hayride and 
barn dance and a Christmas dance. 

In respect to Brother "Bill" Liolin, 28 brothers commemorated the anniversary of his death by 
donating blood to the local pint parade. Bill, an infantry reservist called back into service, was 
killed in Korea. 

Iota Chapter extended an invitation to hold the Fraternity's Annual Convention at Clemson, 
S.C. on May 1, 2, and 3. Once again, Beta Chapter was well represented and everyone felt that the 
Clemson House afforded a wonderful place to hold the professional and social activities of the fra- 
ternity. Four of the world's most modern textile plants, located within ten miles of Clemson, were 
visited by the delegates and the alumni. An interesting sidelight is the fact that one of the plants 
visited is the largest in the world under one roof.

During the past year, the fraternity welcomed the personable 
and energetic Mr. Augustus Silva as its faculty advisor. In so doing, 
the fraternity anticipated many years of pleasant association with 
him. This event took place during the annual installation dinner 
at the beautiful "Harbor" in Marion. Several alumni were present 
and all appetites were well satisfied at the expense of several un- 
fortunate fowl. The brothers sworn in were: Norman Friedland, 
councilor; Leonard Kanner, vice-councilor; Jean Ventura, exchequer; 
Allan Konner, recording scribe; Lawrence Portnoi, corresponding 
scribe; and Walter Levin, warden. 

Our yearly convention was held in Philadelphia. Several brothers suddenly became pluto- 
crats after having been introduced to a game played with small numbered cubes in the Alpha 
Chapter's beautiful fraternity house. The brothers stopped in New York to see the sights before 
returning home. The new pledge class was initiated in the usual appropriate manner and then 
joined the old brothers in donating blood to the Red Cross an important fraternity activity. 

As the new school year began, a very successful dance was held by the chapter in its adopted 
fraternity house on County Street. The music was provided by Alumni Brother Louis Queen and 
his orchestra. In November, an open house was given and many new faces greeted the brothers over 
quantities of a popular beverage. 

In 1952, Beta Chapter commenced its program of presenting informal talks on interesting 
subjects. These presentations, made by members of the faculty, proved to be interesting, educa- 
tional, and entertaining. As the first speaker, Miss Nancy Allen, who spoke on the subject of 
Modern Art, received a bouquet of flowers expressing the appreciation of the fraternity. 

On Washington's Birthday, the Chapter traveled en masse once again to Philadelphia as 
guests of the Alpha Chapter for the annual basketball classic. Another hectic weekend was spent 
on the Philadelphia Textile Institute campus. 

As usual, the annual farewell party, in honor of its graduating members, was held at the end 
of the year. The brothers of Beta Chapter offer best personal wishes to the senior class and feel 
confident that they will make a fine name both for themselves and for the Institute in the years 
to come.

TECH TALK, our school newspaper, was first published in 
1950. It is a student publication compiled wholly by students with 
faculty supervision. 

The title, TECH TALK, was selected from suggestions sent 
in by students competing in a title contest. It is a four page news- 
paper, the purpose of which is to bring forth information of interest 
concerning the various activities taking place during the school year. 
TECH TALK helps to interest its readers in the sports activities and 
fraternal organizations. It has been instrumental in enlightening the 
student body of various developments in the Textile Industry and also 
in familiarizing them with members of the faculty. 

The editorial staff of TECH TALK, this year, is comprised of 
Walter Gonet, Editor; Raymond E. Larocque, Business Manager and 
Eugene Cote, Advertising Manager. Our school newspaper is now in 
its second year of publication. 

Developments are being contemplated, such as enlarging TECH 
TALK's size to six pages in order to increase the amount and variety 
of reading material. It is also striving to function as a monthly 
publication. 

The success that TECH TALK now enjoys is due mostly to 
the efficient supervision on the part of Mr. Augustus Silva, our faculty 
advisor.

INTER- FRATERNITY COUNCIL 

The Inter-Fraternity Council was formed in 1947 by the three fraternities 
and sorority to bring about a closer coordination of social, educational, and 
professional activities within the Institute. United in this manner, it was 
felt that much more could be accomplishel by each individual group. 

One of the most important duties of this Council is to draw up a 
calendar of social events for the forth-coming semester. Each group is asked 
to submit a list of prospective dates to the Council. After all possible con- 
flictions are rejected, these lists are passed on to the Faculty Committee on 
Controls. If there are no further complications, the dates submitted are con- 
sidered accepted. The Council is composed of twelve members: each society 
delegates for the duration of the school year three representatives to the meetings 
of the Council 

At the first meeting, a chairman, secretary, and a treasurer is chosen 
from the twelve representatives. Also, an advisor is selected from the Instruc- 
tors at the Institute to serve for a term of one school year. 

During the first semester, the Council sponsored a Fall Hop in the gym 
of the New Bedford Textile Institute. This dance was considered a success 
both financially and socially. Armand Lewis and his band provided the music 
which kept the men and their dates weaving fancy steps throughout the cool 
evening. Refreshments, consisting of apple cider and donuts, were served 
making the evening complete. 

A Patriots Day dance sponsored by the Council was held in the ballroom 
of the New Bedford Hotel. Louis Queen and his orchestra played to the 
enjoyment of the crowd which attended. 

The Inter-Fraternity Council and its members wish the Graduating Class 
the best of luck in all of their undertakings.

During the school year of 1950-51, the Student's Committee of the New 
Bedford Textile Institute was organized. Acting as representatives of the stu- 
dent body, it carries out the school calendar and other matters pertaining to 
the student body; it sponsors student activities which are financed by the 
Student's Committee Fund. 

As a beginning of the Committee's project to have more assembly pro- 
grams, it sponsored an assembly in December which featured Harry Wrench, 
President George Walker, Colonel Leo Bessette, and Reverend Philip Douglas 
as speakers. Following this presentation, a Christmas party was held in the 
school gymnasium. 

The Committee's main projects this school year was establishing a 
cafeteria, promoting more assembly programs, showing a series of historical and 
entertaining films from the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and holding 
a square dance. 

Through the co-operation of faculty members and Mr. Walker, a standard 
of evaluating the students was set up. As a result of this, when a student 
graduates, his record will contain not only his academic standing but also a 
list of the activities participated in, offices held and honors attained, and a 
record of general progress. 

The members of the Student Committee wish to extend their best wishes 
to the graduating class of 1952.

The New Bedford Textile Institute's basketball team of 1952, under the 
guidance of Coach Francis Tripp, opened the season facing an eighteen game 
schedule. 

With only one regular from last year's Southern New England Coastal 
Conference Championship Team, in the form of "Red" Blanchard, returning 
for action, Coach Tripp found he had a job in setting up a smooth, well-balanced 
five. Also returning from last year's substitute list were "Dick" Lafferty, "Don" 
Morton, and Harry Wrench. Newcomers to the Textile basketball force were 
Joe Barbero, "Jerry" Escolas, "Little Joe" Perreira, and Norris Drew. 

In the opening tilt of the season, Textile played host to Gordon College, 
losing by a score of 57-52. 

Moving on to Worcester State Teacher's College, the Red Raiders lost 
its second straight game, a thriller to the last second, by a margin of only one 
point. Joe Barbero layed up a two pointer which would have won the game 
for our side, but the basket was disqualified because the time had run out. 

Traveling next to Bradford Durfee Technical Institute in Fall River, 
the Red and Grey five dropped its third straight game by the score of 70-61. 

For their first victory of the season, the Red Raiders subdued a Rhode 
Island School of Design quintet by a score of 72-49. "Don" Morton, "Jerry" 
Escolas, and Norris Drew countered for 45 of these points. 

Textile's cagers, in defeating Bridgewater State Teacher's College 63-54, 
racked up its second victory in five attempts. "Jerry" Escolas and Joe Barbero hit 
the nets for 40 counters. 

Hitting the road again, the Red and Grey dropped the next game to New 
Haven State Teacher's College. The final score was 68-60. 

Meeting an undefeated Stonehill College Quintet in Brockton, Textile 
again was defeated by the score of 83-35. 

NBTI's next engagement, with Lowell Textile Institute at Lowell, saw 
the Red Raiders on the short side of the score, 57-49, once again. 

Coming home to play host to a Worcester State Teacher's College quintet, 
the Red and Grey avenged an earlier loss by a trouncing of 69-37. "Jerry" Escolas 
Joe Barbero, and "Red" Blanchard hit the strings for 19, 14, and 12 points 
respectively. 

Traveling to Bridgewater, the Textile cagers dropped the next game to 
a hard-fighting, aggressive team from Bridgewater State Teacher's College to the 
tune of 62-44. 

Although biting the dust for the tenth time in fourteen attempts, the 
Red Raiders, nevertheless, offered a Becker College club stiff opposition before 
falling by the wayside 66-52 on the latter's court. 



58 



Holding a powerhouse Stonehill College combine on even terms for all 
but the last three minutes, the Red Raiders might very well have upended the 
same outfit that walloped them earlier in the season 83-35. But in those last 
three minutes, the visitors pushed 6 points through the nets and held on to 
win 47-41. Barbero, Lafferty, and Drew combined for 29 points. 

Fighting a "dog-eat-dog" battle all the way until the final buzzer, Textile's 
quintet was beaten at the hands of a Bryant combine, 70.-64. It was a ding- 
dong battle, with first one club holding a sizeable edge and then the other 
taking over. Barbero, Lafferty, and Escolas hit the nets for 19, 15, and 13 
points, respectively. 

A desperate last ditch rally by Textile's quintet enabled the Red and 
Grey to climax a brilliant second-half rally and avenge a previous loss to Durfee 
Textile on the home court. Overcoming a six point Durfee advantage, the 
Red Raiders copped a 50-48 triumph in the last period. 

The Trippmen fell before a fourth period Gordon College onslaught, 
going down to defeat by a 57-51 score at the latter's gym. The game was closely 
played and hard fought throughout with the lead changing hands several times. 
However, with the score tied at 45-45 with six minutes remaining, the home 
forces broke the game wide open by scoring seven consecutive points to ice 
the contest for the night. 

Traveling next to Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, the Millmen 
dropped their fourteenth to a powerful Pratt Institute quintet by a 77-49 score. 
"Red" Blanchard, however, took game honors with 20 points. 

Despite a brilliant final quarter surge, the Red Raiders took a 64-53 
licking at the hands of Philadelphia Textile in Philadelphia. Lafferty, Drew, 
and Blanchard were outstanding in their attempts to pull this last scheduled 
game of the season out of the fire. 

Picking one of the stormiest nights of the season for its best effort, the 
New Bedford Textile Institute quintet rendered a good Bryant College five a 
smashing, 71-40, defeat. The game, a benefit played for the Marion March of 
Dimes Fund at the Tabor Academy Gym, saw Escolas, Lafferty, and Blanchard 
inflating the score by a total of 42 points.

COACH FRED BEADSWORTH 



A well-played and hard-fought game opened the '51 season for the NBTI 
hooters against Keene State Teachers at Keene, N. H. Textile was off to a good 
start with three quick goals; but, with the determination of their opponents 
to win, the NBTI team had a fight on their hands in the last quarter, when 
Keene State Teachers tied the score at 3-3. Artzi and Belotti saved the day, 
however, by finding the nets for a goal apiece and giving Textile a 5-3 victory. 

The second game of the season with Bridgewater State Teachers at Bridge- 
water was the only downfall of the Red Raiders by a score of Bridgewater 5, 
Textile 3. 



In the first ten minutes of play in the return game with Bridgewater, 
Checa opened the scoring. Martinez tallied in the third quarter quickly followed 
by another goal by Checa to give the Red Raiders a 3-0 lead. In the closing 
minutes of play, the visitors notched their lone goal to avert a shut out. 

After a long and tiring ride to Lowell, the NBTI eleven showed endurance 
and stamina in battling to a 1-1 deadlock with its arch rival. Roy played an 
outstanding game at fullback. 

Suffolk University of Boston was defeated easily by a fighting NBTI team 
by the score of 7-0. 

The Red Raiders' trip to Fall River for the game against Durfee Tech 
was made memorable by the exploits of inside left Belotti. On leaving the 
dressing room, Jorge proceeded to direct the rest of the team in the lead car to 
the pitch. In the half hour that followed, an un-scheduled sight-seeing tour of 
the city — offering cemeteries as places of interest — was offered — OR was 
Belotti lost? The game was a see-saw affair until the second half when Belotti 
tallied the 4th goal. This performance was later followed by Artzi and Perreira 
which ended the game with a score of 6-3. 

The Textile eleven was visited by Durfee Tech at Brooklawn Park for 
the closing game of the season. In the mud and rain, Belotti tallied the only 
goal of the Red Raiders to give them a 1-1 deadlock.

BASEBALL 



The 1950 aggregation, facing one of the toughest schedules in Textile 
diamond history, had put away their spikes last spring with a record of 7 wins 
and 4 losses. This was great news, not only for the school, but also for the fact 
that almost all the squad would be back in '51, with the exception of veteran 
"Chinky" Vanasse. The winter rest would be just what the doctor ordered, 
and with many of the boys staying in condition on the basketball courts, our 
prospects for '51 looked great. 

As Coach Clarry Haskell pondered over the task of preparing a 1951 
baseball schedule, so, in the classrooms and laboratories, did new candidates 
ponder over the prospects of making the varsity. 

Soon, expectations became realities, and the trek from Maxfield Street 
Locker room to the Rockdale Avenue diamond began. The boys were eager to 
get going; so much so that several aching arms and ligaments developed after 
a few days' practice. 

Among the veterans returning were "Art" Sirois, our dependable 
moundsman; "Babe" Poitras, the chunky backstop with the diamond know-how; 
"Lefty" Haworth, the lanky first-sacker who had saved the infielders from many 
an error in 1950; hard-hitting Leo Kubel, who was still having trouble with

his signs; "Don" Schaller, a dependable hurler; and 
"Dick" Bachand, the always dependable clutch 
hitter. Of course, Manager Len Hackett was back 
to keep our records straight for another year. 

The newcomers consisted of Romeo Richards, 
"Dick" Lafferty, Jesse Fernandes, Norm Cote, Eng- 
land, Viera, Sarkes, Hartley, Charves, and Mayhew. 
These were welcomed heartily by coach Clarry 
Haskell after the loss of Thatcher, Carbonaro, 
Lake, John & Paul Lowney, Vanasse, Higgins, and 
Furtado. 

After two weeks' preparation, the starting line- 
up for the first home game with Stonehill College 
was released. The infield consisted of Cote, lb, 
Bachand, 2b, England, ss, and Richards, 3b. In 
the outfield, We had Charves in left, Kubel in 
center, and Sirois in right. The battery was Poitras 
and Fernandes. 



In this opener, Textile won a thriller, pulling out a 6-5 verdict with a two run outburst in the 
ninth. Leo Kubel was the main cog in this uprising with a timely single with the bases loaded, 
scoring Haworth and England with the tieing and winning runs. Fernandes pitched a fine game, 
allowing only seven bingles over the distance. 

The next three contests were anything but great for Textile. We lost a heartbreaker at the 
hands of Assumption College at Worcester, losing 2-1, with all runs in the game unearned. Follow- 
ing this was another 1 run loss at the hands of Bridgewater State, which saw 14 Red Raiders in the 
line-up, including 4 pitchers. To jar our preserve further, we dropped a loosely played contest to 
Durfee Tech at Fall River in an abbreviated fine inning contest. 

Next in line came our arch-rival, Lowell Textile Institute. We had our ace, Sirois, ready for 
this one, hoping to get "Art" the victory in his last season at Textile. This was a closely fought 
affair, with the score standing at 6-6, going into the Lowell half of the ninth. They loaded the 
bases and singled in the winning run, Sirois again losing another heartbreaker. 

Textile defeated Durfee Tech in their next encounter by the score of 7-1, but, again, fell by 
the wayside to the tune of 6-3 at the hands of Bridgewater State in a loosely played game.

TENNIS 



Tennis, ably represented internationally by Frantz Brandt, Jean Ventura, 
and Channy Chiu and locally by "Rickie" Bernier, "Red" Blanchard, and "Big 
Jawn" Sylvia, re-appeared once again as one of the actively-participating sports 
at the Institute. 

The tennis team began its season in fine style by defeating Durfee Tech 
of Fall River on the courts of Buttonwood Park. The final score of the match 
was 5 to 1 in favor of the Institute, an auspicious beginning and a well-deserved 
victory. 

The next match was the team's initial loss. Playing against a well-drilled 
Bryant College team in Providence, Textile fought hard but could not avert a 
6 to shutout.

agaii 



Still playing away from home, Textile visited Fall River and 
defeated Durfee Tech by the score of 4 to 1 . The sets played by Bernier, Ven- 
tura and Sylvia were extended and their outcomes were victorious. Chiu lost 
his singles match, but, paired with Ventura, they easily out-matched their 
opponents in the doubles. 



The final match of the season played with Bryant College saw the Textile 
aggregation overcome by vastly superior forces. Although the final score, 5 to 0, 
showed a shutout, it could not be considered an easy victory for Bryant College. 
As in the previous contests, the Institute combine fought valiantly. 

The spring of 1952 found the tennis team scheduled against such schools 
as Stonehill College, Bridgewater State Teachers, Durfee Tech, and Bryant 
College. A fine season was anticipated for the team since the majority of the 
players were returning.

Color fading pays off for him 
. . . but not for you! 



He's green, he's yellow, he's brown, he's 
black. He brightens, changes . . . and 
fades his shades. 

Color fading, chameleon-style, is out 
of man's world. For, remember . . . no 
matter how much his color fades today . . . 
you can bet it'll be back in brightness to- 
morrow! 

Don't you wish that were the case with 
the colored products you deal with? Un- 
fortunately, it isn't. Once the bright col- 
ors have faded . . . they're dulled out 



forever. 

That's why it's important to guard 
against color fading by insisting on dyes 
that are built to last for the life of the 
product— dyes that are fast to everything 
the product's exposed to. 

Such fastness can be yours when you 
turn to Du Pont for dyestufFs! Our tech- 
nical experts will help you find the right 
dye for the end use — whatever it may be.

REVERE TEXTILE PRINT ROLLS 

A New Bedford Product Famous For a Hundred Years 



For more than a century the New Bedford 
division of Revere Copper and Brass Incor- 
porated has been making textile print rolls. 
As a result of this long experience the Revere 
organization is in a unique position to know 
and understand practical textile printing prob- 
lems and how to meet them with rolls best 
adapted to give efficient, economical service. 
Textile print roll requirements are severely 
exacting. The copper must be homogeneous, 
free from imperfections, impurities, hard spots, 
strata, blow holes. It must be evenly, precise- 
ly tempered, sufficiently ductile to be "picked 
up" by the engraver's tool, yet sufficiently 
hard to enable the edges of the engraving to 
stand, without becoming rounded or burred, 
through long service. 

The rolls must be perfectly concentric : they 
must be straight within close tolerance limits ; 
they must be strong enough to drive a heavy 
printing cylinder by friction: tough enough to 
withstand repeated pushing on and off man- 
drel: and must have the smoothness and tex- 
ture required to prevent the edges of the 




engraving from being eroded by the "doctor" 
blades. 

The standard, most economical roll is the solid 
wall copper roll. Rolls of this type can be re- 
peatedly re-engraved, the old engraving being 
turned off. An average size solid wall copper 
roll should permit at least 25 such turn-offs, 
thus affording 26 new engraving surfaces, dur- 
ing its life. 

Also available are cheaper rolls, "re-built" by 
drawing new copper tubes over cores consist- 
ing of old turned-down rolls. However, these 
are more likely to cause trouble, and in the 
end are definitely more expensive than the 
solid wall rolls. 

Revere specialists with many years of experi- 
ence in this field are at your service to assist 
you in specifying and obtaining rolls best 
adapted to serve your individual requirements. 
Revere ability to render capable service of 
this kind is perhaps best attested by the fact 
that a large proportion of all textile print rolls 
in use throughout the United States today 
are of Revere make.

ORATOL L-48* 

A Powerful Condensed Fatty Acid Amide Detergent 



In the dyebath, Oratol L-48 has superior 
action, good foaming and excellent penetra- 
tion. It assures level dyeings on all fibres 
and fabrics. May be used in the same bath 
with permanent antifume agents. 

Oratol L-48 is a highly active scouring agent 
for the proper preparation of goods for 
dyeing. It is excellent for washing both 
print goods and permanent resin treated 
fabrics. Oratol L-48 removes thickeners and 



decomposition products completely, giving 
bright, clear shades. 

Oratol L-48 has efficiency in low concentra- 
tions in either hard or soft water thus saving 
time and labor. Why not write today for 
complete details and samples for a test run. 
We feel sure you will find that versatile 
Oratol L-48 has real action in a wide rangf 
of textile operations.

STILL WIDE OPEN 

Our American inventors and scientists, backed by our remark- 
able industrial know-how and skills, may seem to have produced 
today about everything it's possible to produce. Those with little 
faith in our country and its future would have us believe so. 

But to American youth the gates of opportunity are wider 
open than ever before. Thousands of new and better ways of doing 
things, of new products and new developments, will be created by 
those who properly prepare themselves.
